It’s Not Just Your Data That Hackers Are After

When you think of what hackers want, you probably think that they are after your most important financial data. However, security researchers have found that hackers are able to gain access to other pieces of important data on devices that you would never imagine could be hacked.

Security researchers from the University of California, San Diego, have recently discovered that some car security systems have vulnerabilities, and that hackers are able to remotely control vehicles via a simple text message. This is possible because of the small black dongles that are connected to the cars’ diagnostics ports. Once they have gained control, the hackers are able to remotely activate the vehicle’s windscreen wipers and most concerning, the brakes.


Small Businesses are Targets of Hacking Too!

When it comes to hacking, it is not just large scale or global businesses that are at risk – small businesses are equally likely to fall victim to this threat. This danger became very apparent following the Target department store breach in 2013, an event that compromised the information of over 40 million customer credit cards. It has since been discovered that the breach occurred when the computer system of a small refrigeration company near Pittsburgh was hacked. The connection? They were doing work for the Minneapolis-headquartered retail giant Target.


Don’t Get Caught Out, Prepare For The EU Data Protection Law Changes Now

Any company that deals with data in the EU in any way will be aware of the imminent changes to the EU Data Protection Law. This will affect companies that have operations in the EU, store data of customers that live in the EU or deal with data that passes through the EU. It is important that you are prepared for the new changes that will see the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) pass into law to avoid being caught out.

The problem is that no one really knows what the changes will entail, which is the source of most anxiety surrounding the law.
